Today’s highly interesting read (05/27/20): My church was burned down because we want to worship in person

Today’s read is from Jerry Waldrop who has been pastor of the First Pentecostal Church of Holly Springs in Mississippi for 31 years. Here’s a brief excerpt followed by the entire column.

On Easter Sunday, police officers with the city of Holly Springs interrupted our service and issued me a citation for violating an unconstitutional stay at home order. Ten days later, our peaceful Bible study was shut down although we were following all social distancing guidelines. But the nightmare wasn’t over. Last Wednesday, someone burned down our church, leaving only a smoldering mass of debris and our dreams. They left graffiti, trying to shame us for worshiping together in our church.
